Homemade Sauerkraut - #ulcerativecolitisrecipe

Yum
Again this is #UC recipe. Fermented food is good for him so we got miso paste, kimchi without chili, sauerkraut. First batch was finished so needed more and the way he consumed , it was a good idea to make it at home. So look for the recipe and it’s very easy to make it at home, so got cabbage and  make this. Sauerkraut is nothing but fermented sour cabbage, its widely used here in US for hot dogs as a condiment, but you can use it as a side dish too. To give some color, I have added one carrot too. I am sharing these recipes because we didn't find recipes which belongs to #UC patients. So hoping this will help someone , the way it’s helping my husband. To get whey, we take out water from the yogurt, you can use if you have leftover water from paneer too.

Ingredients :

½ head of the cabbage- finely chopped lengthwise
1 carrot grated
2 tbsp. sea salt
2 tbsp. whey

Method:

In a big pot, add cabbage and carrot, add sea salt and whey and mix it with hands to release the water from cabbage.
Put it in glass jar and cover it and put it away in dark place.
Check after 3-4 days when it starts to fermented, check to see if its enough fermented as per your desire.
You can leave it for 1 month to 6 months for fermentation.
Once done , put it in fridge and you can use it for 6 months to 1 year.
Divide this in small containers so you don't mess it with the whole jar. Use it only with clean spoon and store rest in fridge.
